I spent the day exploring some of the historical sights of the city such as the Picasso Museum, the ancient Roman theatre and the cathedral. I walked up the steep hill to the Alcazaba fortress in Malaga. This gave me an insight into the Moorish history of Malaga.The history of the city and the region emphasises the links between European cultures as well as Arabic / North African culture.
We attended a CPD session on emotional intelligence issues.
Through discussion and role play we examined how to solve disputes from suggested scenarios that we acted out.
This encouraged us to see issues from various points of view and seek a ”win win” solution.
I attended a Flamenco night in Malaga with staff from a number of colleges. I was greatly impressed by the authenticity and beauty of this cultural event involving traditional flamenco singing, dance and music to an amazing standard.
I travelled to the historical village of Frigiliana with staff from several colleges. It's known for its Moorish old quarter and narrow streets decorated with ceramic mosaics. Exhibits at the Archaeological Museum include Phoenician pottery. the small costal town Nerva.
